"Our Family" by Callie Grace!

Check out one of Callie Grace's latest artistic masterpieces...


Here we are...Mommy, Caty, Caroline Faith, Carson, Callie Grace and Daddy! Our whole family! Not exactly sure why none of us have feet...but I still love it!! :)

Seriously, have you ever seen anything so PRECIOUS?!! This is how my oldest daughter sees our family...and she is right!! She is really starting to "get it"! If you are out there praying about adoption and are worried about your biological children and how it will affect them, please hear me say this...

Our three children are THRILLED about having an adopted sister from Ethiopia!!! They talk about her all the time!! This adoption process has been amazing for our family! I promise you, it has bonded us all together even more strongly! We are all united in our passion and excitement to bring Caroline Faith HOME!

I really cannot wait to have our family all together! We are just not complete right now with our little Caroline Faith still in Ethiopia...but we're waiting on His timing! It's always perfect...and we are trusting that He will one day make our family COMPLETE!!

"Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6

OH my goodness! THIS IS SO PRECIOUS!!!! What an amazing child she is! :) And I know that if she's good with it, usually the other two follow too! :) So glad to know your kids are so excited and doing so well with it all. God is truly working! :)

PS. Are you going to the TFA conference? Some girls I know are going and B asked if I wanted to, but I feel weird going without him. I hope you get to go! :)

How precious, Alison! I remember when my older kids started drawing family pictures and finding the brown crayon for their baby sister! How I love it when God creates families that are "red and yellow, black and white."

That is so sweet. You need to get it framed and hang it in the house where everyone can see it. What a treasured gift :)
